Expended on is correct. Eliminate A.
Parallel structure is “expended on the creation (noun)… and on construction and decoration (nouns)…”. Eliminate C. “And” is also shorter than “as well as”. D is not a complete sentence. E sounds as if the creating of images accounted for the construction. This is not the meaning of the sentence. B is correct.
